“Yoga widens range of motion and increases access to more muscle fibers, allowing for more substantial hypertrophy in any given muscle group,” according to a certified trainer and yoga teacher.
If regular lifting routines are your thing, why not add a session of yoga as well. You could activate the muscles which you never use.
After all, if we have to give you an example – you use your woody deodorant on most days, but that musk deo is good too, right? For example, the serratus anterior or “boxer's muscle,” provides stability for your shoulders. So, yoga can help you get ripped with ease.
Deep abdominal breathing is an intrinsic aspect of yoga, and it activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This lowers levels of cortisol, a hormone that forces your body to hold on to belly fat. Training yourself to breathe deeply through yoga can reduce stress.
Yoga also helps lower your heart rate. Breathing also becomes more stable, thus providing more oxygen to your body.
The primary significance of yoga is to find that fine balance between your mind and body. But it also challenges your strength & flexibility. Yes, so put on your favourite deodorant, or heck, even your girlfriend’s comforting perfume, and prepare to sweat it all out – while attaining some peace.
There are quite a few yoga postures that are particularly good for men, and puts them to test!
- The Wheel –
The wheel pose will open up the spine, shoulders and quad muscles resulting in improved flexibility. It also acts as a safeguard against various injuries.
Lie down on your back and press your feet into the ground next to your hips. Press your palms on the ground beside your ears, elbows up. Press down with your hands and feet and lift up in your chest and abdomen. Only raise yourself to where you can breathe easily. Stay for 10 long deep breaths and lower slowly.
The HeadStand – A challenging pose, but it helps you stay calm and increases concentration.
It also is responsible for increasing circulation and rejuvenating the nervous system. For athletes, if you practice this pose enough it helps you attain balance.
Get on all fours, interlace your hands behind your head, place the top of your head on the ground, tuck your toes and lift your hips up. Walk your feet in getting your hips over your shoulders. Hug one knee in and then the other. Lift legs up. Stay for three minutes and slowly lower yourself back down.
The Hand Stand –
Strengthen your back shoulders and core with this pose, and increase focus.
Place one foot in front of the other, lift your back leg up and raise your arms straight out in front of you. Press palms on the ground with arms straight. Gently rock forward until you feel steady enough to lift both legs off the ground. Hang with the legs in an 'L' shape. If you are steady there bring the second leg up.
Though this might seem like the easiest aspect of yoga, but it is actually the most difficult. Everyone knows how hard it is to quiet the mind.
Meditation has vast benefits from improving your mental focus, clarity, lowering stress levels, to kick starting your immune system. Practice every day to settle the mind.
